Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carpentersville District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum implements key concepts such as numbers and order of operations on a primary level. By focusing on fewer concepts more in depth during the year, these concepts are thoroughly explored and the students’ mastery is ensured. Once this foundation has been implemented, students then explore more complex ideas. The science curriculum follows the Next Generation Science standards which emphasize key concepts, implemented early on, in order to explore and examine the physical world.
The English Language Arts curriculum focuses on nonfiction and complex texts in lieu of fiction and poetry. It also focuses on analytical writing; students are expected to analyze the reading, form opinions, gather evidence to back up their conclusions, and test those theories. Vocabulary is also a focus. The goal of all of these curricula is to encourage students to become life-long learners and to give them the tools they need to succeed in post-secondary education.

Chalk Talk: How to Choose a Tutor
Tutors can mean the difference between doing well in a class and failing. There are several types of tutoring available. Many schools offer peer tutoring, which means that another student who has done well in this particular class helps fellow students. This can be a great option since it’s free, but it might not go into enough depth for some students. There are also online tutoring options. This is a somewhat impersonal approach, and can be good for students who only need certain basic kinds of help, such as editing papers. But for a more in-depth tutoring experience, seeking out an in-person situation might be preferable. Once possible tutors have been found, it’s a question of rapport and ensuring that the tutor is helping the student find learning strategies that are effective.
